While sitting here at my desk at work I decided to pull out my 920 and play around with it since I was bored and as soon as I put it on my desk the computer speakers started buzzing and popping. At first I didn't think anything of it since my speakers will sometimes crackle or pop because a cord has been slightly pulled out somewhere. So I fiddled with the cords a bit and it seemed to go away. So I picked my phone back up and took it out of sleep and the buzzing started again.
Now that I figured out it was my phone I started playing around trying to figure out what could be causing it. As long as the phone is in sleep it doesn't effect the speakers at all, but as soon as it comes out of sleep it starts right up. Also the closer it is to the speakers the louder the noise is and it doesn't stop unless there is something solid between the speakers and the phone, like the desk, or if I put the phone far enough away from the speakers, about 4ft.
Has anyone else come across this issue? Or could it just be my speakers don't like the phone.

Im not sure what part of my first reply you think is "not necessarily true", but if you google ATT speaker interference, you will see a ton of others having that same problem with all phones.

Any GSM phone will cause this issue to some degree. Every phone I have had with AT&T, Cingular, and going back to Powertel have caused the buzzing sound occasionally. My iPhone 3G was worse than my Focus though.

In my office right now I have 2 sets of speakers on 2 different computers. One of them is just a simple 2 speaker setup (using onboard audio). The other is a 4.1 setup (using a soundcard).
In this same office I have two Samsung Focus', HTC pure, HTC Tilt 2, and the Lumia 920. I have used all of those phones for multiple days in this office during the past couple of weeks with all the PC speakers/computers turned on. The only phone that makes any interference is the Lumia 920.

I noticed that the vast majority of those reporting the issue have iPhones.
You're experience with both of your iPhones causing the issue, compared with my experience with only the Lumia 920 causing the issue, leads me to believe the issue is more common with iPhones and recently with the Lumia 920 specifically.
